Vivian Lynn Stanger Manning
October 1, 1952 – January 4, 2011
Vivian Lynn Stanger Manning, our wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and “baby” sister passed away at home, surrounded by her loving family, on Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2011. We will miss her so much, but are happy for her that she is now without pain and reunited with her grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters and other family that have gone on before.
Vivian was born in American Falls, ID, on Oct. 1, 1952, the last of 15 children. After four boys, the family happily greeted their new sister. Her mother states, “she was everyone’s little doll, especially mine.” She grew up in a loving home. Vivian received all of her early education in American Falls, and graduated from American Falls High School in 1971. She spent a year at Ricks College, and then received a grant for nursing school in Boise. In 1974, she received her Bachelor’s in Nursing as an RN, a profession she practiced much of her life in hospitals, nursing homes and at home. She had one of the two highest scores in her group that took the State Boards. Her first job was at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, UT.
Vivian did not have much time to practice her nursing skills for awhile, as she was called to the California Arcadia Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints starting June, 1975. She served at the same time her mother was serving in the Fort Lauderdale Florida Mission.
In 1978, Vivian met the love of her life, Sheldan Manning. They were married June 30, 1978 in the Idaho Falls Temple, beginning a life of 32 years together. Two children were born to this union, Lance in 1979 and Alisha in 1981. During their married life, they’ve lived in Ogden, Harrisville, East Layton, and Syracuse, UT, where they now reside. Their family now includes three granddaughters, Brena, Teara, and RyaLynn, who were the light of Vivian’s life.
At the time Vivian started nursing school, she began developing what became a painful, chronic illness called Crohn’s disease. Later, she developed additional chronic health problems associated with this disease. But even though being sick much of the time, Vivian was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and nurse. She served others through her pain, and was usually a very happy person. She had a solid testimony of her Savior, Jesus Christ, and a full understanding of the Plan of Salvation. She looked forward to reuniting with loved ones.
Vivian was preceded in death by her parents, Marion and Ethel Adkins Stanger; sisters Gail and Winnie Bower (Martin); brothers Richards (Billie of Pocatello) and Davis. She is survived by her husband, Sheldan Manning, son, Lance, daughter, Alisha, and granddaughters, Brena, Teara and RyaLynn, all of Syracuse. Others who survive her are her brothers Lionel (Nancy) of Meridian, ID; Kay (Bonnie) of American Falls; Gordon (Vicky) of Pocatello; and Merrill (Victoria) of Salt Lake City; her sisters, Afton Grasmick (Jake, deceased) of Idaho Falls; Elsie Kelly (Myrlen, deceased) of Bountiful, UT; Ruth Bitton (Lloyd) of Pocatello; Ethel Ellsworth (Glenn) of Las Vegas; Ann Jenkins (Evan, deceased) of Tooele, UT; and Iola Kelly (Gary) of Layton, UT.
Funeral services were held Saturday, Jan. 8, in Syracuse, UT. Burial was in the Syracuse City Cemetery.
Harold Arthur Funk
Harold Arthur Funk, 74 of American Falls, died of complications from an extended struggle with cancer on Friday, Jan. 7, 2011. Harold was born on March 29, 1936 in American Falls to the late Elmer and Mary Gehring Funk. He was the third oldest in a family of six children. Harold married Marlene Annette Lehman on June 5, 1955. Their marriage was blessed with four children.
Harold attended schools in American Falls but during the fall of his sophomore year, the desire to farm far outweighed the fleeting attraction of a school desk. He then began a productive career that included farming, real estate, industrial hose, farm irrigation and domestic and agricultural pumps. Harold had an amazing ability to analyze a situation, determine the problem and design a solution. He was a one stop shop. He was always available to share a story and as Harold aged his love of sharing God’s amazing grace became his passion. Harold was also willing to share his talents with the irrigation industry he so enjoyed and was recognized as the Idaho Irrigation Equipment Association Man of the Year. Throughout his life he served on various community, associations, and church boards.
Harold and Marlene lived in the American Falls and Aberdeen area for most of their married life except for a short time near Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada and eight years in Spokane, WA. Harold had a lifelong love for the outdoors, hunting, exploring the desert, and a good auction.
Harold was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Herman. He is survived by his wife of more than 55 years, daughters Teresa Moss of Pocatello and Brenda (Gordon) Toevs of Lake Ridge, VA, and sons Justin (Celia) of Palm Gardens, FL, and Troy (Tabitha) of Aberdeen. He is also survived by his sister Beatrice Kopp of American Falls, brother Elmer Funk, Jr. of Vancouver, WA, sister Mary Etta (Everett) Talbert of Kuna, ID, and sister Marlene Funk of Pocatello, as well as 11 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
A viewing was held at the Powerhouse Christian Fellowship, 2905 Sunbeam Road from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 11. The funeral service will take place at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 12, at the American Falls Community Church, 745 Bennett Ave, American Falls, Pastor Steve Isaak officiating. Interment will be at the American Falls Cemetery. Funeral arrangements are by Davis-Rose Mortuary.
